    How Did Sodomy Become “Pride”? In 1969, New York City police raided the “Stonewall Inn,” a “gay bar” in which sodomy, then criminalized, was being committed. The resulting riots by “gay people” in Greenwich Village are regarded as the genesis of the “gay pride” movement.The movement spread throughout the country and ultimately achieved governmental recognition by a supposedly religiously neutral but actually inherently anti-religious federal government. Two presidents, Clinton and Obama, have “officially” declared that June is “Gay and Lesbian Pride Month,” thus committing the “religiously neutral” federal government to a moral position that radically contradicts a fundamental precept of...
  • Why I do NOT celebrate gay pride

    If you ask my detractors, they would tell you that the reason I do not celebrate gay pride is that I’m a bigot. A hater. A homophobe. A transphobe. And I understand their perspective. After all, no matter how Christian I claim to be, if I tell a gay couple I do not believe they are truly married in God’s sight, that feels like hatred to them If I tell a woman who identifies as a man that I still believe she is a woman, that feels like hatred to her. From their perspective, I can understand how unchristian my...

    Elton John slammed Russian President Vladimir Putin for being hypocritical on LGBT issues after Kremlin distributors censored Rocketman, a recent biopic about the singer-songwriter's life and career throughout the years. In an interview with the Financial Times, published Thursday, Putin declared that Russia had "no problem with LGBT persons." A day later, John took to social media to call out Putin's comments as hypocritical. In a statement shared to Twitter, the 72-year-old musician condemned the Russian leader for allowing distributors in his country to censor LGBT-scenes in Rocketman. "Dear President Putin, I was deeply upset when I read your recent...

    (RNS) — For the first time in its 134-year history, the Evangelical Covenant Church has voted to remove a congregation from its roster over its position on LGBTQ inclusion. The vote to expel the First Covenant Church, a prominent and historic Minneapolis congregation, for being “out of harmony on human sexuality,” took place at the denomination’s annual meeting in Omaha on Friday (June 27). The Minneapolis church has never performed a gay marriage, though a lesbian couple had an off-site wedding performed by its music director in 2014, which produced a series of conversations about its future over the past...

    Ezekiel 16:49 "Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy." Because of the fall of man in the Garden, the specter of sexual anarchy always haunts societies. Societies without a strong moral ethos to suppress this destructive behavior are vulnerable to it. Affluent societies are particularly vulnerable to homosexuality as the scripture indicates above. Historically, most societies, for purposes of self-preservation, do not allow homosexuality to go open and uncontested (e.g. African Nations,...

    There’s at least one area of agreement among conservative, centrist and liberal leaders in the United Methodist Church: America’s largest mainline Protestant denomination is on a path toward likely breakup over differences on same-sex marriage and ordination of LGBT pastors. The differences have simmered for years, and came to a head in February at a conference in St. Louis where delegates voted 438-384 for a proposal called the Traditional Plan, which strengthens bans on LGBT-inclusive practices. A majority of U.S.-based delegates opposed that plan and favored LGBT-friendly options, but they were outvoted by U.S. conservatives teamed with most of the...

    [Catholic Caucus] German bishop pushes diocese toward adopting ‘blessing’ for homosexual couples April 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – German Bishop Georg Bätzing, of the Diocese of Limburg, is inviting Church representatives, Catholic youth and lay organizations, as well as diocesan members to a discussion forum on 4 May in Wiesbaden to deal with the matter of a “Church's blessing” for “couples who cannot marry in the Catholic way,” including homosexual couples. Also in view are “remarried” divorcees and cohabiting couples. The diocesan website states that a blessing of a homosexual couple has already taken place in the past. LifeSiteNews was able to...

    I would be remiss if I let the day pass without challenging my colleague Eddie Scarry. Earlier today, he defended right-wing writer Denise McAllister — formerly of the Federalist and the Daily Wire, from both of which she's since been fired — for a Twitter tirade against journalist Yashar Ali. The tweets, which I won't relay here in their entirety, essentially amounted to McAllister attacking Ali's homosexuality in response to this tweet. In since-deleted tweets, McCallister then wrote: “A gay men commenting on a heterosexual relationship is just. Sad. Pathetic really. I think @yashar has a crush on me....

    For the first time since the dramatic change in public opinion around gay rights, Democratic presidential candidates will be invited to participate in a forum focused exclusively on LGBT policies. The event is scheduled for Oct. 10, the eve of National Coming Out Day. Hosted by the Human Rights Campaign and the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, the 2020 candidates will discuss topics related to hate crimes, bullying and transgender rights. The HRC Foundation held presidential forums for Democratic primary candidates in 2004 and 2008. In 2012 and 2016, it did not hold one for the large Republican primary...

    ...I must begin with a crucial terminological caveat: Typical of the spiritual, intellectual, moral, and social leveling–or “dumbing down“–of our age, we are inclined to invoke or reject buzzwords which smear out a great deal of historical and conceptual complexity and depth. Specifically, in our day the word “sodomy” has a very narrow meaning, while in contrast, in Damian’s discussion, “sodomy” refers to “various forms of sexual perversion…, including contraception, masturbation, same-sex pederasty, and adult homosexual acts” (p. 18). So, while Damian argues that canonical penalties for “sodomy” should be “even stronger for members of clergy, … [and that the]...

    ‘Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, started at a job this week teaching art at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia. It’s not a school where everyone is welcome.’ Vice President Mike Pence’s private religious views have been a remarkably common aspect of liberal commentary. Pence is one of the most polite and respectful religious people ever, if the headlines about him are to be taken into context. The most recent was a breathless HuffPost headline that read, “Karen Pence Is Working At A School That Bans LGBTQ Employees And Kids.” It begins with a dark and somber...

    A California pastor is looking for a job after facing backlash over a church sign that affirms the biblical definition of gender and marriage. Pastor Justin Hoke of Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church in Weed, California, posted a new church sign in early January. The sign read: "Bruce Jenner is still a man. Homosexuality is still sin. The culture may change. The Bible does not."

    TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) - You don't have to be a history buff to know about 1945's V-J Day in Times Square. The iconic picture, known as "Kissing Sailor," portrays a U.S. Navy sailor grabbing and kissing a stranger in a white dress. The photo was taken on Victory over Japan Day just hours after the announcement that Japan had surrendered and World War II was finally over. The sailor in the photo was on a date in Times Square and decided to celebrate by kissing the closest nurse, a stranger who was not his date. Navy soldier Bryan Woodington, 33,...

    When the New York Mets held their first LGBTQ Pride Night in August 2016, fans waved rainbow flags in the stadium, the Lesbian and Gay Big Apple Corps Marching Band performed, Citi Field’s giant Coca-Cola sign was lit up in rainbow colors and the Kiss Cam caught several same-sex smooches throughout the game. In keeping with tradition, the team honored a veteran at the game, and for that first Pride Night, the Mets honored a gay Army vet. Nearly two years later, however, the Mets’ hometown rivals — the New York Yankees — have yet to host a Pride Night...

    Could California pastors be charged with a crime for using Christian doctrine to help someone leave homosexuality? This could be the case if a new Golden State bill, AB 2943, becomes law. Making matters worse, some critics claim it could even be used to impede sales of the Bible. California, 11 other states, and D.C. already ban “reparative therapy” — which seeks to eliminate unwanted same-sex attraction or feelings of “gender” identity — for minors. The new bill, however, applies to adults as well and would prohibit not just therapists but anyone from offering such aid. It’s gold-plated hypocrisy: The...
